FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SCEN AND SERN MONTANA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BILLINGS MT
330 AM MDT THU APR 16 2015

.DISCUSSION...
LOOK FOR SOME LINGERING RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS EARLY TODAY OVER
NORTHERN WYOMING AND SOUTHEAST MONTANA. AFTERNOON HIGHS WILL BE
WARMER THAN YESTERDAY AS WE SEE SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS. THE
RAIN AND SNOW WILL RESULT IN SOME RELATIVELY HIGH HUMIDITY LEVELS
THIS AFTERNOON COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAVE SEEN THE LAST SEVERAL
WEEKS. FRIDAY WILL BE A LITTLE WARMER THAN TODAY WITH LIGHT WINDS
TURNING EASTERLY IN THE AFTERNOON. SEASONAL TEMPERATURES WILL
CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND...BUT A COLD FRONT WILL SWEEP ACROSS THE
DISTRICTS LATE SATURDAY PRODUCING A STRONG WIND SHIFT TO THE
NORTHWEST AND CHANCE OF SHOWERS. BT
